Posted On Dec 25 2019 by

first_imgHUNDREDS of children will descend on the superb facilities at Finn Valley AC in Stranorlar today for the annual Primary School sports finals.It’s an 11 am sharp start and with a varied programme and it will no doubt attract a massive crowd to what has become an annual festival of athletics with running, jumping and throwing and with age range 7 to 12 a lot of action is assured.The event kicked off some 42 years ago at Mac Cumhaill Park Ballybofey and has become an intregal aspect of the Summer term in our schools from Malin to Bundoran. The majority of athletes that have achieved not only in athletics but in other sporting disciplines can trace their steps back to this event.“It’s about getting primary school children involved, giving them the opportunity to sample an aspect of the sport – an educational opportunity in reality every bit as important as many of the mainstream subjects at school from a learning, social and health perspective,” said Irish Olympic team manager Patsy McGonagle who in fact initiated this project all those years ago.All schools in Donegal have been communicated with and its anticipated that some 80/90 of them will respond.Good luck to everyone taking part.
